The railway bridge connecting
Llandudno Junction to Conwy
was designed by Robert
Stephenson and completed in
1848. As with his railway bridge
over the Menai Strait (completed
two years later), it was a tubular
construction and was the first of
its kind. The bridge itself is not
visible in the depiction alongside
but its near-side end is marked by
the openings in the tower which was designed (with mock arrow slits) to be visually compatible with
the castle. The tower immediately behind it marks the far-side of the bridge
